I am a licensed clinical psychologist and I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults. I love working with this population and I appreciate the unique perspective young people offer as they navigate the often tumultuous transition between childhood and adulthood.

I trained at Beth Israel and Mount Sinai hospitals in New York City, The Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, and I completed my Clinical Internship at the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center before serving as the Adolescent Specialist at a group psychotherapy practice in Brooklyn, NY. 

Through a reflective process, my hope is to help clients feel more equipped in adapting to the stressors in their lives, better understand themselves, gain confidence and identify steps they are willing to take in order to feel more fulfilled in everyday life.  I value the importance of providing individualized treatment for each of my clients and I believe the best predictor of effective therapy is the quality of the patient-therapist relationship itself.  My approach is active, warm, empathic and collaborative, and I believe trust, compassion and a sense of humor too are critical to the development of a positive working relationship. 

I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Long Island University in Brooklyn, NY, and prior to my doctoral training I earned my BA in psychology from Harvard University.
